‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Yoko Tanaka
Age Range: 6-8
In a meadow filled with dandelions, one flower bud is ready to open and when it does it blooms into a real lion with a cheeky grin and a fluffy yellow mane. With no roots to worry about the dandy lion is free to explore the big wide world. And what adventures he has! Riding on a train and on the back of a fluffy sheep. Sailing the sea, getting lost in a scary big city full of cars and people, chewing on some sticky popcorn at the cinema and flying in a bright yellow plane.
This is a truly exquisite wordless picture book with dazzling artwork by Japanese artist Yoko Tanaka that will have children pouring over its pages as they follow Dandelion’s exploits. The delicate shadowy illustrations, with dashes of bright yellow, conjure up a dream-like sequence and shows how imagination can truly soar.
